Itemd2r Rune Guide: A Complete List - Diablo 2 Resurrected Ways for Beginners from itemd2rladder's blog

High runes are the most valuable runes in Diablo 2 Resurrected, usually referring to the runes from Mal to Zod. Where to farm high runes in D2R and how to farm them easily? Other than common areas, in this article, we’ll bring you more best places to farm Diablo 2 Resurrected high runes and what factors affect the drop rate.

Diablo 2 Runes

A Rune is a type of item introduced in the Lord of Destruction expansion. Runes can be inserted into socketed items to add various modifiers to these items. The specific modifiers added by a given Rune depend on both the type of Rune used and the type of item in which it is inserted (weapon, shield, body armor, or helm). Whereas Runes that have been inserted into an item cannot be recovered, they can be destroyed to free up any busy sockets.

Runes are most notable for their ability to create powerful Rune Words when inserted into the right type of item and in the right order, among other conditions. They are also used in several Horadric Cube transmutations, including crafting and upgrading.

D2 Resurrected High Runes Loactions

Arcane Sanctuary

This is a very good farming location due to ghosts. In Diablo II, ghosts have a smaller, limited drop pool compared to other enemies. Which means that your chances of them dropping a High Rune are higher. It’s important to note that you need to kill them while they are standing on the path (space area) otherwise they will not drop any items at all. There is also a super chest at the end of each platform and you can run into the Summoner, which has a fair chance of dropping a High Rune.

Lower Cross

This is probably the most farmed location for players playing through a single player campaign. There are a ton of poppables and if you are playing with 8 players the drop chance is so much higher. Also, be on the lookout for campfires. There is a tavern nearby that always spawns 2 super chests. The game can sometimes spawn up to 2 campfires, meaning you can potentially earn up to 6 super chests.

Tal Rasha Tombs

I highly recommend coming here with a few extra players as the enemies’ spawn with a ton of different immunities and it might be troublesome for a lot of players to handle by themselves. This is a top pick for players because there is a ton of enemies that spawn here. And remember, there more enemies you kill, the higher your chances of dropping a High Rune. Another reason players like to come here is that when you are done farming an area you can simply teleport over to the other tomb to continue your farming session.

Lower Kurast

Act IIIThis is probably one of the best places to find High Runes. It’s easy to farm and there a ton of super chests which have a very high chance of dropping High runes and other valuable items. You can find theses super chests in a hut next to a circle of torches. Each hut contains 2 super chests to the left and one to the right side, above the torches.

The Countess

The Countess on Hell difficulty can be found in the Forgotten Tower. The Countess is probably the most popular farming location as she always drops at least one rune, which increases your chances of finding a High Rune. Keep in mind that she cannot drop all runes, which is why this location isn’t favored by all.

Secret Cow Level

This is possibly my favorite location. Not only because of the drop chance of items being so high, but because ever since I discovered this “secret” location, I was always hooked on it. I loved that Blizzard added this little gem. Secret Cow level is a great place to farm because there is a ton of enemies which keep respawning – provided you don’t kill the Cow King and none of the enemies have any immunities, making this level so easy to farm for High Runes.

I hope this guide has helped you in some way. If you are a casual player then you might not focus on High Runes as much as other players, but, Runes, High Runes and especially Runewords are very powerful and can really change the way your character performs. If you get tired of farming for High Runes, don’t worry! We got you covered! Come to , you can buy D2R Items and gold right away.
